    Mine has the red one fitted and it was done by a previous owner, I cant say I have noticed it being particularly rattley or noisy.

    Most people use red and say yellow is too hard. I have a yellow one and it's fine. Down to choice really both good. Just yellow is harder than red

    I read that Yellow gives more vibration, and red gives less, wasn't really sure myself at first, but ended up fitting a yellow one.

    There is a slight increase in vibration, but not enough to worry too much about, and it's only on tick-over and pulling away.

    Personally, I'd buy red.

    Its Noticeably better than yellow with less vibration.

    I used the yellow one and all is good . A little vibration at first but soon faded away . Only torque the main bolt that goes through the center of the bush to 12lb and the yellow is fine , think the people that say they get a lot of vibration have over tighten this bolt .

    That sounds like a plan. I agree with S3 JOHN that most of the problems seem to come from over tightening the centre bolt compressing the bush and causing vibration.

    I still believe that the red is better, hence the reason for its development.

    Same effect as the yellow one has but with less steering vibration using more modern durable materials.

    I'd also assume a better driving experience but only if one is measuring it in this way. If not, buy the yellow one.

    I believe the red one was developed for diesel engines and the yellow one is for petrol .

    Thinking of fitting one of these to my 8P 2.0TFSI. Is there a very noticeable difference?

    Excellent modification. Worth weight in gold.

    Car plants the power better as it prevents engine vibration.
